Can you believe that 2022 is right around the corner? (It feels like we’re still trying to figure out how to get through 2020!) Yet, with all the continued upheaval and uncertainty in the world, we are delighted to report that we are still finding new and fun ways to help people.
We’re back to packing meals! We’re certainly not back at full strength, but several groups have stepped up to help us help our local food shelves with healthy and delicious meals. We even developed a new packing program designed specifically for small groups. We call it the Party Pack. Check it out here.
And our Food Box Program continues to grow beyond expectations. In fact, this holiday season, we teamed up with Beyond The Yellow Ribbon And Building Healthy Military Communities to provide over 1,100 Holiday Food Bags to military families and veterans throughout Minnesota. This great partnership brought our total of food boxes and bags delivered this year to 2,200 – that's 61,000 pounds of food for our neighbors in need. We're already planning on delivering even more next year.
In short, we zigged when 2021 zagged, and now we’re really looking forward to a great 2022. Thanks to everyone who hung with us this year.
